Stunning Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house right on Lake Ontario. The house is just as described and pictured--clean and comfortable, and lovely. The huge covered porch in back was the best! Just sitting outside at night and listening to the wavelets splash on the shore and watching the lights from the planes taking off from Toronto airport was so relaxing. The house has everything you need and the owners live right next door. They are very nice and helpful if you need anything. This house is a good 35-40 minutes from Niagara Falls, but is worth it for the peace and quiet, and there are lots of other things to do in the local area.

The views of Lake Ontario were amazing, especially the sunsets and the view of the Toronto skyline was cool! We enjoyed our stay and seeing Niagara Falls, Old Fort Niagara and even our adventure into Toronto! We are looking forward to coming back soon! Thanks again!

Great long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the lake house. The accommodations were first class all the way and the space was very comfortable for the two of us. We headed in a different direction each day and there was plenty to see and do....lots of state parks and natural areas. The neighborhood was quiet and welcoming and we will definitely be back. Thank you!

The house was as described. We celebrated my 50th birthday with a quiet, relaxing weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday and enjoyed a relaxing weekend. Although the weather wasn't what we had hoped, the home was perfect. Clean, comfortable and a great location to explore New York's wine country and we spent a day exploring Niagara Falls. It was exactly what we were looking for. Would have loved to have had better weather to enjoy the outdoor space to the home...maybe next time! Thank you for sharing your "blessing on the shore"!
